Northwich fire station opens its doors to the public
3:20pm Thursday 22nd August 2013 in News
NORTHWICH Community Fire Station is throwing open its doors to showcase the many ways firefighters and support staff are working hard to help residents stay safe.
The free open day takes place at the fire station on Braddon Close on Saturday between 10am and 3pm and promises something for everyone.
There will be plenty of drama when crews re-enact a rescue following a road traffic collision, and attractions also include vintage and modern fire service vehicles including bikes and boats. There will also be a height safety demonstration and for the children there will be activities to keep them entertained including puppet shows, face painting and go-karting.
Refreshments will also be available including ice cream and partner agencies also attending the fun on the day include NHS Choose Well Trust, the Police and St Luke’s Hospice.
Organiser and crew manager Ronnie Moore said: “I think many people would be surprised at just how much the modern fire and rescue service does to prevent and deal with emergencies.
“We’re really proud to have this opportunity to show the people of Northwich and the surrounding area how their community fire station works hard to keep them safe.”
